Enhancements in network monitoring and user analytics
with cloud processes provide greater
User Control
• Implementing “best practices” such as
PCI DSS 2.0, NIST SP800.53, etc.
Service
Transparency
• Collaboratively providing advanced
security architectures to broader
customer set
• Customer
system access
and configuration
monitoring
• Structuring architectures to ensure
tenant isolation
• Portals and
dashboards
• Using DoD approved utilities and
processes to perform security functions
• Real-time status
and risk reporting
